Once a week I do a yoga routine called Wholyfit, which quotes scripture while holding poses. One posture is called gift—a standing side bend that instructs me to reach out with my hand as if receiving a gift from God. While holding that stance, I wondered how many gifts I’d missed from simply not receiving them.
The next two days, the forecast is rain. You know I’m solar powered so with no sunshine on the horizon, I’m grumbling. But rain is a gift. As I choose to lean forward with hand open, receiving the coming storm, I learn how to accept all that God gives.
This very day He has something amazing to give to you. Whether rain or sunshine, today God wants you to receive a downpour of blessing. His floodgates are about to open.
So lean forward.
Reach out your hand.
And simply receive.
